"THE BEST TIME EVER"
Date: 1st-8th December 2019
The Place: Jericacoara is the ultimate winter windsurfing destination. Colin has been coming here for many years and his knowledge of the area is second to none.
Jericoacoara in Ceará, Brazil, is a small fishing village, which has become a beach hippie mecca, situated some 300 km west of Fortaleza. Jeri is a place removed from the hurried modern world of screeching sirens, maniac deadlines, traffic jams and endless lineups. A place where streets are paved with sand, where beaches stretch as far as the eye can see and where warm water marries with palm swaying breezes.
It's really the complete package that makes Jeri so incredible, not only can wind and sun be guaranteed from September to January every day, it’s also the great feeling you get in the place. At sunset the whole village, locals or tourists come down to beach for what could be described as a magical hour!
Some guys are playing football, others perform their Capoeira, some people walking up the big sand dune to get the best views of the sunset and others are just enjoying a cold beverage watching it all happening, whatever you feel like doing, its amazing to be part of this pretty unique atmosphere!
Coaching: Coaching runs Sunday – Friday, with change over day on Saturday at a cost of £350 per week. On this clinic We will be covering basic wave sailing techniques to help you launch and recover your kit right up to nailing those top and bottom turns and hopefully landing some forward and back loops.
Conditions: Jeri is a great spot to get into waves, as the wave itself hasn’t got that much power but it is still amazing for jumping and riding, but without having to fear you are going to break a lot of kit!
Travel: You can fly with either TAP Air or TAM Air to Fortaleza (if taking your own equipment speak with Colin before booking your flight). It is then a 4 hour transfer in a luxury 4x4 to Jeri.
